  2. wax on-fuck off, Charlie san
  3. " Once something is added to your collection of beliefs, you protect it from harm. You do it instinctively and unconsciously when confronted with attitude-inconsistent information. Just as confirmation bias shields you when you actively seek information, the backfire effect defends you when the information seeks you, when it blindsides you. Coming or going, you stick to your beliefs instead of questioning them. When someone tries to correct you, tries to dilute your misconceptions, it backfires and strengthens them instead. Over time, the backfire effect helps make you less skeptical of those things which allow you to continue seeing your beliefs and attitudes as true and proper." Not all that humorous but still very relevant to Ch.0 http://youarenotsosmart.com/2011/06/10/the-backfire-effect/

  12. the confused adventures of... GUINEAMCNIGGASPIC
  13. Iraq? Same shit, contractors, manufacturers, experience... it does not matter if the official and politically correct objectives and motives have failed. I'm not even sure how that oil thing went but still, there are benefactors to the conflict. It does not rule out stupidity in every other aspect though. I suppose one could also claim Iraq thingy paved the way for destabilization in north africa/syria that we are witnessing right now. Part of Libyans seem to want to overthrow their dictator. Matter of fact some of the rioters have directly addressed Obama to bomb/not to bomb this or that/what he should think about whatever. I don't know how deliberate this all was, but in this case destabilization wasn't as regional as usually. DISCLAIMER: international security acronyms had nothing to do with any revolution ever.
  14. War in Afghanistan has been a positive thing for weapons sales, certain military contractors, the war lords that have taken taleban's place etc, it has also been theoretically a good thing for US/coalition influence in the region (the way it affects Pakistan, India, China etc.) and it has provided valuable experience for the militaries involved. They don't go to these wars out of stupidity. However "terrorist" is mostly just another signal word like "commie" was during the cold war. Since 9/11 they started to use it as a chime to condition people to automatically associate it with screaming muslims. It's not exactly a conspiracy because it catches on in any conformist/populist news source as an effective way to get people alerted/pay attention/buy stuff. You can't expect population support any war if you inform them about the complex shit between afghan regional tribes with different languages, or how Pakistan/ISI is linked with taleban or anything that makes the war sound more difficult than "BOMB AND WIN". Media aspect of this war shit is all pavlovs dog stuff. Reality is complex matters for grown ups.
  15. I bet we're gonna see invasion in Libya/Syria before Obama's term ends. All we need is proper aggression. Perhaps Gaddafi shot down the air france plane or someshit, we'll see...
